‘Virtual Mentor’ Increases Critical Human and Professional Skills in Individual Contributors, Which Are Essential for Thriving in Today’s Dynamic Workplace; Joins Jhana for Leaders Solution
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AllAccessPass—FranklinCovey (FC) (NYSE: FC), a global company specializing in organizational performance improvement, today announced the launch of a new training solution, Jhana® for Individuals, which features bite-size performance support for individual contributors. Jhana’s unique, just-in-time approach supports learning in the flow of work and serves as a “virtual mentor,” helping users increase the human and professional skills that are essential for thriving in today’s dynamic workplace.
Paul Walker, President and COO, FranklinCovey, said, “It’s not enough for individual contributors to simply be good at their core job functions. In order to achieve critical objectives, organizations need talent with next-level skills to build effective relationships, solve difficult problems, innovate and communicate up, across and outside the organization. And now that Jhana for Individuals joins Jhana® for Leaders as an offering in our FranklinCovey All Access Pass®, every employee in an organization can develop these next-level skills and become a key asset in driving their organization forward and grow in their career.”
Jhana for Individuals uses a “push” and “pull” learning strategy. Not only do users receive practical, actionable tips and advice delivered in a weekly email newsletter, but they can also access a robust library of hundreds of articles, videos, and tools to increase their emotional awareness, understand their organizational context, and build and improve in a multitude of workplace skills over time. Learners can skim and find an effective new behavior to try on the job in three minutes or less, and can fit learning into the slivers of their already jam-packed days. The solution is also mobile optimized for easy access on any device.
Rob Cahill, FranklinCovey Executive Vice President, Innovations and Client Experience, said, ‘With Jhana for Individuals, every organization can build a culture of continuous learning. Learners have an easy way to make time for their own development with a weekly microburst of relevant content in their inboxes, where they’re already working. And, the emails are highly engaging, scoring 110 percent higher than that achieved by the next most recognized education and training benchmark. Learners are actually using the solution, which translates to on-the-job application and increased employee and organizational performance.”
FranklinCovey All Access Pass subscribers have instant access to Jhana for Individuals in their pass, as well as the companion product, Jhana for Leaders for people leaders. The two solutions work together, ensuring that people, no matter their role, have the resources they need when they need it.

As a quick-use resource, the learning only takes a few minutes at a time and learners can then get back to work achieving goals to help their organization be more successful.
Jhana for Leaders provides bite-size performance support on the messy, complex subject of people leadership. Leaders receive a weekly newsletter and can access the leader’s library to build key leadership skills, such as running effective 1-on-1s, navigating difficult conversations, performance management, and developing others.

- Meet business objectives. Jhana is a quick-use resource that managers use to problem-solve on the fly and get back to work achieving their goals, whether that’s improving sales numbers, increasing customer satisfaction, or training employees.
- Recruit and retain top talent. Practical tools helps leaders evaluate their skills in hiring, coaching, trust-building, developing others, and additional essential skills.
